DESIGN SQUAD NATION | New Series Premieres January 26 | PBS

http://pbskids.org/designsquad/parentseducators/preview.html Premiering Wednesday, January 26, 2011 (check local listings), the producers of the Peabody and Emmy Award-winning engineering and reality competition series Design Squad take their show on the road with a new spin-off series for tweens, teens, and family-viewing—Design Squad Nation. Over ten episodes, engineer co-hosts Judy Lee and Adam Vollmer travel across the country and around the world, working side-by-side with kids to turn their dreams into reality. Whether it is a red-carpet worthy gown for fashion designer Christian Siriano or a playground for kids in a rural village high in Nicaragua's northern mountains, Design Squad Nation shows that engineering isn't about hiding away in some lab; it's about being active in the world, taking risks, collaborating with interesting people, and using science, math, and technology to solve real problems. Design Squad Nation takes a kid's passion, combines it with engineering, and shows how you can create an array of engineering feats—a cake that is part delicious, part electronic, part mad scientist; a pedal-powered bike organ; a human-powered flying machine; and more. Need a skatepark for you and your friends? Wish you could help the world conserve water? Have a dream of an invention that can improve someone's life? Design Squad Nation shows kids that if they can dream it, they can build it. pbskids.org/designsquad/parentseducators/preview.html Category:Education
